Location Overview:


When you first step into LOFT’s HQ in Carlsbad you’ll immediately notice our passion for aviation. From our three vintage Link trainers in the lobby to our vast collection of WWII Aircraft nose art, aviation permeates everything that we do. In addition, you can always enjoy cold refreshments, snacks, or a hot beverage from our full-service coffee and espresso machine while relaxing in our pilot lounge outfitted with an original 737 forward flight attendant galley and first class seats.
